  1. Nobody was supposed to know a certain retired English professor possessed of a split personality clandestinely controlled this account as an outlet for his more crude impulses. All these years everyone thought it was someone else entirely. Someone whose impulses were all, and exclusively, crude. Or worse. The jig is up. You've outed myself!
  2. I had the exact same thought. Then I wondered if he left his over-the-calf tube socks on.
  3. Long before there was a HOC, I went through a Brentston-esque phase of buying and selling guitars. And I mean a lot of guitars (hence Brentston-esque). I bought a shit ton few (hi, hon!) keyboards with just the profits I made flipping guitars. When one of our younger sons was still in a crib, my wife was complaining to me she couldn't manage to put the mattress down lower and said son was able to climb out of his gayly painted prison. She eventually realized the issue wasn't the construction of the crib, but the guitar cases I had hidden under it (and forgotten about) that were preventing the desired operation from succeeding. This led to a less-than-fun discussion, but I digress. Across all of those guitars that passed through my hands, not once did I ever think, "boy, this thing sure is heavy!" or "wow, this sounds fantastic for how light it is!" The ones I gelled with (I suppose some might say "bonded with") stuck around. The ones that didn't, well, I flipped them to fund other guitars (and keyboards and fun stuff). There are a few guitars I moved on that I wish I had back (<cough>Tonesucker(tm)</cough>) and a few that I foolishly moved out that I did get back (most famously, a Hamer Studio FM wrap-tail that...well, never mind, long story). At no time, however, did weight alone ever figure in to the calculus. I am sometimes amused when I read posts--here and elsewhere--of people saying "I absolutely will not consider a guitar that weighs more than <x> pounds!" What if it was the sonic equivalent of the second coming of <insert your own personal messiah here>? You wouldn't at least ponder the possibility? What if it also had a neck to die for? Still no? Fretwork that was sublime? Not worth considering, eh? An oddity in the wiring that allowed you to get exactly *that* tone you hear in your head? Nope, weighs too much, hard pass, I guess. The way I view it, any particular guitar should be evaluated as the sum total of the parts (or metrics), not on any one factor alone. But, well, that's me. And I'm a little odd. So, there's that.
  4. And a quick glance at the "Circle H" logo and one might think it was related to Hondo.
  5. When I was actively building Eurorack modules (COVID hobbies, eh?), I invested in a vacuum desoldering gun gizmo. Saved me a ton of time, and the aloe plant grew bigger. Desoldering a bunch of microscopic SMT crap is a PITA. Worked a charm on through hole, too.
  6. Yeah man! The blue Z3 has rosewood, which I have deluded myself in to believing softens some of the hi-fi sharpness of the Zcoils. I mean, if I could even play the damned thing.
  7. I shouldn't have looked. I think I want with this: https://davesguitar.com/products/gl/asat-classic-15/ It'll pair nicely with the blue bassboat flake ASAT Z3 with MOTS pickguard I have.
  8. I don't know if there's a consensus on what guitarists need to think about when buying an amp. But, I'll tell you what I'm usually thinking when I buy a new amp: "Did I start with two fingers of scotch or three on this one?"
  9. Every time I pick up a guitar, the fingers of my fretting hand magically form, in order of likelihood, an open E, G or C (but never an A or D). When I see posed pictures of people holding guitars and not fingering an open E, G or C, I sometimes wonder, "What does that...sound like?" In Henry's case, keep in mind he envisioned Gibson only as a "lifestyle brand", a la H-D, from which he could extract a fortune. And that's where I'll stop. Also, when does the comma go inside the quotes and when doesn't it? I've always put it inside when it was an actual quote of something said, but outside when it's used, as here, only to convey a certain snarkiness. I hope I haven't been going around all these years executing the literary equivalent of an Em/F#(add)sorta, y'know?
  10. I can type with above average accuracy? Dunno. Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson Gibson That'll jack up the search engines, eh?
  11. There is no talking to him. He's fond of saying, "There are two types of people in this world. Avoid them both." Not sure what you mean about words changing. You mean when people mis-type "Gibson"? Never happened to me. Nuh-uh.
  12. Probably. I strongly suspect that, a lot of the time, he does things with no understanding of expected outcomes. Like, he probably didn't even fully read the page that says "hey, we're going to upgrade your board to this nifty new accomplishments/awards system, are you sure" until after he pushed the "Yes" button.
  13. I occasionally think I'd like an H-525. But, then I think I can't really do it justice, so why? That one Randy has (or had) was beautiful. The "2" wouldn't bother me in the least, especially as it's only "finish flaws." Nice looking guitar, Brent! Also, when it's time to trade it off, I still have that Amish dining room set...just sayin'.
